Really the top !!!

William076, 27.12.2013
This microphone is virtually the most high-end in terms of micro replacement for Precision Bass. It is a real gem quality manufacturing and sound, I do not think we can objectively compare it with some other microphones twice as cheap as I could see on some forums.

The microphone comes in a small package very sympathetic, very vintage in mind. It is packed in a "Antiquity" fabric bag, with a mini booklet explaining the state of mind and manufacturing of the Antiquity series. The quality of the workmanship and the care given to the details are obvious to the very first impression ...
The goal of this microphone is to be able to compete with an original of the late sixties, Seymour Duncan pushed the vice until slightly demagnetizing the coils and magnets to simulate the age of the microphone, among others ... The micro wires are also "re-connected" (lightly oxidized pads, worn micro hood), the fabric wires are aged and quite dirty, the copper plate serving as a general mass is nicely oxidized and the whole is sprinkled with dust. In short, it is really illusion ... It must still be in keeping with the state of mind and fashion vintage, because buying a new product but already worn look displeases certain people ...

As for the assembly, nothing more simple if you know how to weld cleanly. The microphone is supplied with a mounting scheme so no worries. Use tin with silver for nice shiny welds and a good soldering iron with a fine tip and which really warms up (500 ° C). As far as to make and seen the price of this microphone, it is wise to take advantage to remake the electronics. For my part, I have mounted two knobs US CTS 250K, a ceramic capacitor 0.022mdf Montreux (and not a 0.05mdf as indicated, but it's just a matter of taste ...) and I wired everything Thread fabric history to be coherent. All for a small fortnight of extra.

Finally, sound level, this micro tears everything. The sound is warm, deep, very beautiful on the finger, really perfect at the pick. The sound grumbles as soon as we attack a little strong, a treat ... All frequencies stand out to perfection, the sound is crisp and dense and is exactly what is expected to hear a P-Bass .

In conclusion, and even if the price of this microphone is quite high, it is one of the best microphones for P-Bass for which the sound of a P-Bass of the period '60 / '70. It gives your P-Bass the sound. I already used one of these pickups to upgrade a P-Bass classic '50 and it had so pleased me that I just transferred the SPB3 of my Nate Mendel for him.

His money worth

percy stuart, 22.09.2013
This pickup is worth its money. I have now played several p - bass pickups. It is topautic that coils besides magnets can be so different, but it is true.

I have played in the same bass three different pickups with the same string and all sounds different. Not that it would be important for the general music listener, but for me and the overall sound of the band. This sound is the best sound for my taste: balanced, centered and very vintage, at least what I mean by vintage, dry and cool, which gives the bass a bit of its own independence and makes the basssound appear rugged.

This makes the difference to the standard pickups and justifies theindividual price difference.
